If they are only useful together I would include them both in the same application.  If this is only a "provisional" application it should not really matter but in the future at the non-provisional stage if the patent examiner thinks you are trying to claim more than one invention he/she may ask you to split them up into separate filings called "divisional" patent applications.

Hello everyone.
I have a question: I have two devices, let's call them base unit and photo camera. Base unit processes the special output file from the photo camera (that I have built from components so it would be simple to use, fully automatic) and the output of this camera is some special (my own) file format of the picture with some basic processing.
They both are useful only when using them together.
How should my PPA look like in such case?
